Benjamin Bullitt and second wife Sarah

I am intrigued by the Will of Benjamin Bullitt dated 03 May 1766, especially his reference to William Burditt alias Bullitt.

I believe the second wife of Benjamin to be Sarah Burditt (Burdett/e), born maybe in Maryland, with son William born prior to her marriage to Benjamin.

I've come to this conclusion by the following:

1) A couple of references to a Sarah Burditt on the LDS site.

2) Permanus Bullitt, 1st Lt., Wm. Tripletts Cav. Co., 1781. Parmanus Bullitt, fifth son of Capt. Benjamin (d. 1766) Bullitt and his second wife, Sarah Burditt (?).
From: Fauquier County In The Revolution, by T. Triplett Russell and John K. Gott, 1976, p. 416, 416n, 420.

3) The following from -- "The Bullitts were traditionally Hugenots, of Lan-guedoc, France. Joseph Bullitt, immigrant to Maryland, is said to have had two sons: Joseph, born February 8, 1688, died 1709; and Benjamin, born April 28, 1693, died sometime between May and October 1766. For Benjamin Bullitt's first wife, Elizabeth Harrison, see "A Brief History of the First Harrisons of Virginia of the Cuthbert Harrison Line," by Henry Tazewell Harrison. Elizabeth married Benjamin Bullitt in 1737. She died in 1757, leaving six children. It is doubtful that the will of her father, Thomas Harrison, was probated in Stafford County, Virginia, where he died in 1746, but many Stafford records are lost. Benjamin Bullitt's second wife was Sarah Burdette, his housekeeper, who had six children. For the Bullitt family, see "Fauquier County, Virginia, Historical Society Bulletin," No. 3, June 1923, page 318; Records of Fauquier and Prince William Counties, Virginia; "Draper Manuscripts," University of Wisconsin Library; and records of the Filson Club, Louisville, KY.

Although, I am not a Bullitt family researcher, my interest is that this Sarah Burditt, may, or may not connect into my family.

Does anyone have any thoughts/input on all this?
